Come to the library... for art

       In November, the Old Colorado City Library joined the Pikes Peak Library District in the first of what will be monthly art exhibits in the system's branches. A print by M. ReeAnn Hyde, as displayed in the Old

       A show of linoleum and hand-pressed prints by M. ReeAnn Hyde is on display through Nov. 30 in the downstairs meeting room of the local branch at 2418 W. Pikes Peak Ave., after which an exhibit from another branch will rotate in for December, explained Old Colorado City manager Joceylne Bodden.
       In January, the featured artists will be students from West Middle School, she noted, with a Coronado High School exhibit anticipated later in '09
       “I think it adds another dimension to our services,” Bodden said of the monthly exhibits. “It's a great thing that we can offer space for local artists.”
       Artists from the area who wish to show their works can contact the library district at 531-6333. Submissions are juried in by a team of personnel at the East Public Library.
